Can anyone who is more computer-minded than me explain why my laptop comes up with a message about remote procedure call terminating unexpectedly when im on the internet, and then proceeds to shut down the laptop and restart it?cos its sending me crazy. It's not a virus, and it's not the phone extension. It's also not because someone is trying to phone the house, cos no-one phones me at 11pm!! PLease can someone help me before i go crazy!
Thanx

    sounds like u've got the blaster virus. download and install a virus checker and get rid of it


    edit - just read it again, erm if its not a virus then i dunno

    theres a removal tool for the blaster worm here anyway

    I'm assuming you have XP. If so it sounds to me like you have the blaster/nachi virus. Symptom of the virus is shutting down the RPC on XP operating systems. Do as Ron says. Get the fix and apply.
